Give a Gift to the Government!

Gifts to the United States

Credit Accounting Branch

Hyattsville, Maryland 20782

I'm sure the checks will be pouring in.

Instead of gifts they should just pay what they owe. $300 Billion in unpaid taxes every year. $2,680.00 per household.

updated 3:53 p.m. ET, Sun., March. 4, 2007
WASHINGTON - Think of the uses of $300 billion, the annual gap between what taxpayers owe and what they pay.

It would more than cover the federal deficit for a year or the extra money President Bush wants in 2007 and 2008 for Iraq and Afghanistan.

It would pay for the $125 billion that Congress has agreed to spend on Hurricane Katrina relief, with enough left for three years worth of federal education programs.

So people keep $300B and spend that, which generates income and tax revenue, the former of which is spent, thus generating further income and tax revenue...

That money is eventually paid, unless someone declares bankruptcy or dies, I believe.

But Chris Edwards, director of tax policy studies at the libertarian Cato Institute, said the taxpayer compliance rate is one of the highest in the West, well above some European countries with thriving underground economies.


Doesn't sound like it's that bad to me.

Then again, I pay my taxes (every quarter :-P ) and feel that gives me the right to gripe about them. They take tax from what we make, tax us to spend money, tax us on any interest earned, etc. :-P
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Stupid cheapskate Americans, always cheating on their taxes. Nothing like that would ever happen in Canada. ;-7
